Vegetarian and Organic Resources in Singapore

Visiting yogis and friends often ask where to find good vegetarian food while they are in town. In response, I've compiled a list of eating places that I've been to and enjoyed. Its in no particular order or preference and is definitely not comprehensive! I'll continue to grow the list, and would be happy to receive suggestions or feedback from you as well. Just send them to orders@gajahgoogoo.com.

I'll start on the organic store list soon...

The Soup Spoon
Not fully vegetarian, but it offers a wide selection of hearty vegetarian soups salads and sandwiches. A regular soup costs about S$5 while the SouperValue Combo Meal which includes a soup, choice of either a salad or sandwich AND choice of either a pack of chips or apple AND a yummy chocolate costs between $7 to $10.

The Whole Earth Vegetarian Restaurant

The only vegetarian Peranakan (Straits Chinese) & Thai restaurant in town! Local Peranakan food is very meat based, but somehow the restaurant manages to retain the authentic taste of the original dishes without a jot of meat. Bibik’s Buah Keluak and Olive Leaf Rice are yummy. Not that cheap, but very special. Located in the very atmospheric Geylang Road, at the edge of the (very safe) red light district.

Location
593 Geylang Rd
11am to 10pm daily
Tel: 65-68413319

Cedele Bakery Depot
Originally a bakery, Cedele now offers quite a wide selection of salads, gluten-free soups, sandwiches, entrees, breads and desserts. While it isn’t wholly vegetarian, there are a number of vegetarian options and the emphasis is on healthy ingredients and organic ingredients where available. I like their Shan tofu salad and tofu burger. They also offer a range of eggless ice creams, soy coffees and herbal teas.

Sunflower Vegetarian
It’s a hole in the wall in an old shopping centre, but offers a tasty range of simple vegetarian food. You can select a pasta or wonton laksa from the menu, or select a few side dishes to go with brown rice or their special green noodles (made with homemade spinach oil). Your meal will cost under $10.

Lingzhi
If you are looking for Chinese Vegetarian Fine Dining, Lingzhi is the place to go. They offer a range of delicious vegetarian dim sum, as well as a buffet lunch or dinner for $18.80 and $23.80 respectively (with a minimum of 4 diners) at Liat Towers. There is a different menu (hot pot I believe) offered at their Far Easrt Square outlet). Otherwise a meal without drinks would cost about $20 per head. Its part of the Tung Lok group of restaurants.

Yogi Hub
A very popular organic / vegetarian restaurant that’s moderately priced and cosy. The food is light, tasty and healthy, though portions are a little small. Their gado gado (an Indonesian raw salad) and bubor cha cha are particularly good.

INDIAN VEGETARIAN
Throw a stone anywhere in Little India and you are likely to hit a good Indian restaurant. The vegetarian will certainly not starve here, not with the abundance of dosas, idlis, pooris, thalis, chaats and chappatis available. These are some of our favourites:

Anandabhavan
All the outlets are good: Syed Alwi is modern and offers the widest menu with fusion options.

58 Serangoon Road

Daily: 8.30am to 11.30pm
Tel : (65) 6297 9522

Komala Vilas
One of the oldest south indian restaurants in Singapore, and still one of the best. You can't go wrong with a thali, washed down with filter coffee.

76-78 Serangoon Road
Lunch Daily From 11.00am to 3.30pm
Dinner Daily From 6.00pm to 10.30pm

Madras New Woodlands
Another old stalwart that serves consistently good food. Very generous Thali meals and the coffee (pulled in front of you) is a must have.

12/14 Upper Dickson Rd
Tel: +65 62953750

102 Serangoon Rd
Tel: +65 62953750

Raj
A branch of Raj Restaurant in Calcutta, this is a relatively upmarket restaurant (but with delightfully reasonable prices) serving vegetarian north and south Indian food. The Little India outlet is better – the one at Biopolis has a more limited menu and is less generous with servings.

76 Syed Alwi Road
Sunday - Thursday: 11am to 11pm
Friday - Saturday: 11am to 11.30pm
Phone +65 6297-1716
